Field Trips at the Playseum

There is so much fun and learning to be experienced at the Playseum!

  • Children can grocery shop in the Safeway and use their counting, sorting, and social skills.

  • Stroll into the Pet Shop to hear, see, smell and touch real animals. We have rabbits, frogs, lizards, doves, finches and fish.

  • In the Art Studio, children can use their own imagination and create something new out of recycled or new mediums, paint on our plexi-glass wall or have our signature art piece done for a group rate of $3/per child. Signature project is painting a ceramic tile. We glaze it for you and allow you to take it home the same day!

  • Try on a costume and learn about countries from around the world in the International Shop.

  • Play the drums or keyboard on our musical stage in the family room or pick from one of the many bins on our activity shelf to build, create or learn.

  • Cook up a pretend pizza in our Domino's Pizza Shop and serve it to your teacher.

  • Go back in time and try out the old typewriter in our Grandma's Attic or play on a 1970's organ. You will also find suitcases of old stylish clothes and unique finds that take us to yester years.

  • Rescue someone from a an imanginary fire by putting on some fire gear and driving our fire truck.

  • Come make your own homemade candy lip-balm or toothpaste at our Soap Bar for a group rate rate of $2/per child.

  • Don't forget to visit Ms. Gina's Bakery where you can whip up a mini strawberry smoothie or an Oreo shake for a group rate of $1/per child.  

  • Visit our pretend Little Italy & Little Mexico where kids can serve up a delicious meal to their parents & friends. All food items of coarse are pretend!

  • The Princess Shop is a favorite for the girls. Filled with princess dresses, doll houses, wigs, barbie heads and old fasioned curlers.

  • The farm area has a full size saddle to jump on. Put on a cowboy hat and some chaps. Be sure to take a photo while you pretend to ride a horse.

  • The Fishing Pond is where kids can fish for alphabet letters with magnetic fishing poles. Help them find the letters to their name.  


How does a PLAYSEUM FIELD TRIP WORK?

The general field trip admission for kids and adults is $7 per person for groups over 18 and $9 per person for groups under 18. A group consists of eighteen kids or more.  This admission includes access to all the pretend cityshops where kids use their imagination, play dress-up, roll play and enjoy a story time led by our staff.  

Add on the group activities individually or as a package. The package includes all three activities mentioned above for a group rate of $5/per child. This five dollars will bring the child's admission to $12.00.  By adding on the group activity package each child will receive the full PLAYSEUM experience by enjoying an amazing time in the Art Studio, the Bakery and the Soap Bar as Playseum staff interact and engage the kids with these hands-on activities.  

In every city shop, we have new & used books for sale that relate to the cityshops and when you come in as a school teacher with teacher ID you may purchase any book in the building for only $5 or less and Limit 10 books per teacher.

Books, snacks and additional activities can all be purchased with Playseum dollars. Click on BUZZ ITEMS to read about more hands on acitivites that can be made available. 

What are the chaperone requirements?

We ask that there is at least a 1:8 ratio of chaperones to kids. If children are under 3 years of age the ratio must be 1:3.

How many kids can I bring for a field trip?

We can accommodate field trips up to 80 children at a time. Safety and supervision is important to us, therefore we require chaperones to be 18 years or older.   

How long is a field trip?

The time allotted is 2 hours maximum.  If you would like the field trip to last longer we can add an hour on to your trip for an additional $30.00. You may come in at 9:30am, 10am or 1pm  

What can we do for lunch?

For an additional $25.00 fee you can choose to bring in your own lunches. This allows your group to reserve the eating area for your private use. Our eating area can hold up to 20 children at a time. If  you have a small group, you may opt to monopolize only one table at a time in the lunch area allowing our regular guests to still use the lunch area as well.  If you choose to do it this way there is no charge. If you would like us to provide a pizza lunch to your kids and staff we may do so for  $5/person. We will provide paper plates, napkins, one piece of pizza per person, an apple sauce and juice box for the kids and a soda or water for the adults. Let us know if you would like us to add on the pizza lunch to your package and we will make sure it is nice and hot when you are ready to eat it.

How do I schedule my field trip?

Call and first verify your preferred date and availability. If the date you want is available and you would like to proceed we then will send you a preliminary letter, invoice and a layout of the Playseum. At this point, nothing is reserved or put on our calendar until we have heard back from you with a credit card to be put on file or a $100 deposit. Either of the two choices will hold your place on our calendar.  You will have 10 days to get back to us with a credit card number or a deposit.  If you should opt to give the credit card only we will charge the card $100 if you should cancel or not show up on the expected date. The benefit to giving us a deposit of $100.00 is that the balance will be adjusted according to how many children & adults actually come in the door the day of the field trip.  There are NO refunds and should there be a need for any credit it would be given in the form of Playseum dollars. 

If you should have to cancel your field trip there will be a $100.00 cancelation fee.  You may give us another date and incur simply a $10.00 change fee. The Playseum reserves the right to refuse entrance to unplanned or unpaid field trip.
